You Know You’re a CrossFitter When…..

Funny post from CrossFit Verve

(my good friend Meat Chan!)

■Your shins have more scrapes than a twelve year old boy.
■You know better than to say, “That looks easy”.
■You’ve spent HOURS watching videos of other people working out (who does that?).
■CrossFit t-shirts dominate your wardrobe.
■When you travel, your first concern is if there is a local affiliate close by.
■Refresh is your favorite button after 9pm.
■3 on 1 off takes priority in your schedule.
■The words Snatch and Jerk have lost there comedic value, but farting while deadlifting has not.
■There are days you have to talk yourself OUT of going to the gym because it’s a rest day and that means you are suppose to rest, right? You are confused at this and ask your coach if you can still go for a run. When they tell you rest means rest, still confused, you ask if that means you should do nothing or could you do…?
■You can relate to this sentence “I feel like a GD Navy Seal and an Olympic Gold Medalist wrapped in a F-ing suit of body armor”.
■You shave your hands.
■Pain is a relative term.
■You know what this stands for IWCABTAMD.
■You know the ten general skills by heart and can recite them at social gatherings.
■You have posted pictures of yourself working out on facebook.
■You believe in sweat angels.
■You’ve looked up the criteria for the Nobel peace prize to see if you can nominate Coach Glassman.
■Tape and chalk are at a premium.
■You used to bit your nails and now you pick at your calluses.
■Almond butter is the nectar of the Gods.
■You know that the benchmark WOD’s are named after real people and you would find it interesting to talk with some of them and find out WHY?
■You think in blocks not calories.
■Fat is delicious, you laugh at fat free.
■You don’t remember what it is like to have mirrors in your gym.
■You know that a 70%+ dark chocolate bar can sub as 3 blocks carbs.
■You must workout with loud obnoxious music, but never hear a word of it.
■You consider other CrossFitters family.
■You believe the world would be a better place if everyone was a CrossFitter.

Those are some we came up with, now lets hear yours.
